In bowling, Umar Gul and M Nawaz shared two wickets each while Shaheen Afridi, Anwar Ali and Mir Hamza took 1 wicket each.
Seeing the current form of both the teams, KHY will be favorite in the upcoming clash. Baluchistan is lacking in the bowling. The bowlers are giving away way too many runs and management needs to consider it. On the opposite, with the way KHY thrashed Punjab, they would have certainly gained the confidence back and would be looking to take an edge over the opposition.
